Topic: Anybody know who makes this mandrel?

Anybody know what bassoon mandrel this is? I have had it for years and can't read the light oval emblem on the top if the handle, it was a gift from my college days.

Try the old trick of pressing a piece of paper to the crest and lightly tracing it with a soft pencil.  Often, that brings out details that are invisible to the naked eye.

Thanks Dean, I'll give it a try and let you know. The emblem is quit worn off.
